Prior to that, the Reds had really applied the pressure at the start of the second half and grabbed the decisive goal on 71 minutes.

It was a brilliant team move that finally broke Burnley open, with Paul Pogba starting off the passage of play that ultimately finished with his driven volley sneaking through the legs of Nick Pope.

The strike did take a small deflection off opposition defender Matt Lowton, which seemed to throw the Burnley goalkeeper.

Pogba, playing in a slighter deeper role in central midfield, enjoyed a superb night in East Lancashire and no player completed more passes at Turf Moor than our no.6.

After such a commanding performance, it’s no surprise that Paul was named Man of the Match by supporters in our Official App.

The midfielder finished top of the poll with a resounding 81 per cent of the vote - one of the highest winning margins this season.

Eric Bailly also impressed on Tuesday night and produced a potentially goal-saving challenge in the first half to deny Chris Wood. The Ivorian also had to be at the very top of his game to handle Burnley’s physical frontmen.

He earned seven per cent of the vote in our poll, with Bruno Fernandes third on three per cent.

But it was Pogba, who came away with the title, the first time he has picked up the Man of the Match gong this season.
